I have two sons, two grandsons, two sisters, two nieces and two nephews. Every October they all gather together at our home in Moneglia to collect olives from the ancient trees growing on Figarolo Monte. We also manage a few vacation apartments available for rent throughout the year.

My father was the Mayor of Moneglia for many various years starting from WWI into the 1960s. This picture taken in 1930, of Attlio Caveri (center) with workers who converted the 3.5 mile railway tunnels into Moneglia into modern one-way roads for cars still used today, hangs in our living room in Moneglia.
